I think Cheetah's point about it happening in neutral stance is valid, even though you see Oudin do that in almost open stance.
Yeah I agree with both of you. In some of those pictures you posted, the player has already begun opening up and swinging. That is why the front shoulder is more opened. You paused the stroke at one point. It you looked at their entire stroke most modern players have a point in their forehand prep where their front shoulder is closed, and their off arm is pointed more or less at the side fence
